New Erector Spykee robots

Three new models recently joined Erector's Spykee Skype-capable robot: Spykee Cell, Spykee Vox, and Spykee Miss. Like the original Spykee, the three new robots feature a video camera, MP3 player, loudspeaker, and VoIP capabilities, while the latest versions include an iPod dock in their front. Using a computer, users can control Spykee's movements remotely to patrol about their houses. As with the first model, users design and build their own custom robot according to their tastes or needs. Pricing for Vox, Cell, and Miss has not been released; the original Spykee goes for $370.

The original Spykee robot can act as a sentry for your home while you are away. The built-in video camera can sense movement and either activate an alarm, or send you an email with photos of the perpetrator. When the robot is low on power, it is capable of guiding itself to a power station to recharge the batteries, prolonging its life for extended durations where people will not be home to take care of it.
